The German is the trading name 'Mitsubishi' best known in connection with the Pajero SUV. It has been (2007) won twelve times the material murdering Paris-Dakar Rally. The number of Pajeros in the street scene speaks volumes, as well as the stable resale value. 2.5 million customers worldwide are already for such a specialized product a lot. It is now available in its fourth generation.
Even it is not originally the SUV, how it is used so far. Rather, it has only rear one rigid axle and even in front (internally ventilated) disc brakes. Mitsubishi recognized, that only a modest minority goes with the car in difficult terrain. In the course of its development it loses the rear axle also, but wins with a sophisticated all-wheel system and a progressive body for a SUV. The body is self-supporting and has more space at the end, even if it must be for seven people.
Consequently, it gets a little brother and remains near the top in popularity. Its usefulness has also increased by the high braked trailer load, and its disadvantages are of little significance due to some fairly economical diesel engine. There is criticism for the braking distance. But he is apparently quieter and become more comfortable. It combines the advantages of a big off-road vehicle with an SUV. Oppsite it it has much variation between pure rear-wheel drive and permanent all-wheel drive as well as mid/rear lock and terrain reduction. In the passenger compartment is a lot of comfort that it almost mutates into a precious station wagon.
